rsnapshot Errors

Postby Quartz234 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 3:39 am


i have a QNAP TS251+ with 2GB of RAM, QTS 4.3.5. I want to use rsnapshot to backup some files from another NAS (Nextcloud on Ubuntu on Hyper V). I installed Entware and the rsnapshot packages. I works well to Backup local Data. But if i want to access to the remote machine, i get some errors:

Code: Select all

[2018-11-07T17:56:33] /opt/bin/rsnapshot daily: ERROR: /opt/bin/rsnapshot daily: completed, but with some errors
If i got it right, there are some troubles with the command "rsync -av ...". If i run this command manually, everything is ok !

Can anyone tell me more about this ?

Thank you,


P.S. I m not a pro, and my english is also not the best. Im sorry, thank you for help !
